Download or pod/vodcast lectures
Flinders makes all lecture media downloadable to all students. This is beneficial if your internet connection isn't suitable for streaming, or you want to watch the lectures again later without an internet connection. These files are provided in the form of Podcasts (Audio only) and Vodcasts (Video). The files can be viewed at any time on desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones. You can also subscribe to Topic Podcasts/Vodcasts in software, such as iTunes, which will automatically download new lecture recordings as they become available.
Download individual lecture recordings
Each lecture recording can be downloaded as an individual .mp4 file by clicking the 'download' button in the top right of the recording window.
The file download location will depend on your browser and device set-up, and might sit at the top or bottom of your browser window.
If you can't see the file, check your downloads folder.
